      Graphical abstract. Cellular hierarchy and ontogeny influence the reprogramming efficiency of the B-cell compartment into iPSCs. Human B-cell progenitors are reprogrammed into iPSCs significantly easier than committed Blymphocytes. Similarly, human fetal B-cells are reprogrammed into iPSCs at much higher efficiency than neonatal (cord blood) and adult (peripheral blood) B-cells, highlighting how cellular hierarchy and ontogeny impact reprogramming into pluripotency. Early ontogeny and immature phenotype are associated to higher proliferation rates, a key mechanism underlying reprogramming.

      Graphical Abstract

      Peribiliary glands (PBGs) are located throughout the extrahepatic biliary tree and represent the niche of multipotent (Sox9+) biliary tree stem/progenitor cells (BTSC). In our experimental models, streptozotocin (STZ) administration determined the reduction of pancreatic islets and a correlated increase of PBG mass; in STZ models, PBGs are characterized by the expansion of Sox9+ proliferating cells, the increase of mucinous cells, and the appearance of insulinproducing cells. In parallel, at the level of hepato-pancreatic ampulla, Type 2 Diabetic (T2D) patients showed PBG hyperplasia, proliferation, and signs of endocrine pancreatic commitment in comparison with normal subjects. In summary, our findings indicated that cells in PBGs respond to diabetes with proliferation and differentiation towards insulin-producing cells.

      Graphical Abstract

      A deficiency of the slicer endonuclease Argonaute (Ago) 2, a key enzyme involved in the miRNA biogenesis pathway, in HSCs causes defective self-renewal, reduced proliferation and augmented myeloid differentiation due to alterations in the molecular signature and Transcription Factor networks.
